If you played Snowman’s endless snowboarder, Alto’s Adventure, back in 2015 and couldn’t wait for the sequel, Alto’s Odyssey, to release, you’re in luck because the game just hit the App Store a day early! I’m as surprised as you are, but glad that more people will be able to get their hands on this gorgeous game.
I’ve been playing almost obsessively over the last week or so and really like the new additions. This time, you’ll be sandboarding instead of snowboarding, and you’ll travel through different biomes, each with their own special characteristics. You can even bounce on hot air balloons and ride walls! And, of course, there are characters to unlock. I have a lot to say in my review, which I’ll publish once it’s ready, so I don’t want to say too much about it here. But if you liked the first one, it’s a pretty good bet you’ll like this one, too. And if you haven’t played the first one, this is a good place to start, as it doesn’t assume any prior knowledge.
You can download Alto’s Odyssey right here right now or wait until my review if you’d like to make a more informed purchase.
You can also watch some late-game gameplay footage I made, but it will spoil some high-level goals and characters for you. But it gives a good idea of what the game is like and how different it is from the original:
